Taking Down Your Holiday Lights


Here's a friendly reminder that the City has an ordinance related to the display of exterior winter holiday lights for residential properties. The law states that such lights must be removed by January 15.

"Holiday lights" are defined as a string of lights commonly associated with the holiday season that contains multiple- or single-colored or clear light bulbs that are attached to a structure. Only residential properties are affected.

The ordinance was passed in response to concerns voiced by residents about keeping our neighborhoods attractive. The City appreciates everyone's cooperation.
